  • This is an ortho-mosaic made using Agisoft Photoscan. It’s not perfect. Due to the software used to create the orthomosaic, some blurred lines are apparent along the border where different images were merged – you might notice the blurred areas or distortion along roof and tree lines, and some missing areas around the edges were filled in with the color green. It is geo-referenced. We balanced taking the time for a perfect photo vs. sharing it in a timely manner.
